    Having a problem with my email.

    Newbie here to tablets. On my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, I set up my email fine (real easy) and it downloaded and connected fine for about 5hrs. Since last night I have not been able to get connected again. When I refresh, at bottom of screen, it says "Connection Error (Craig)".

    Do I need to set up my account again? If so, how would I start over?

    I'm not new to forums, but I couldn't find the search feature to try and look this up.

    Wi-Fi speed is 54 Mbps.

    Thanks.

    Search is top right just under the Log-out link. It just has a magnifying glss symbol.

    Thanks for the pointer - found these instructions in another post, but they did not work:

    Non Gmail Email Troubles

    These posts didn't help.

    tablet set up this server info when entered email address and password:
    IN:
    imap.mail.yahoo.com
    SSL
    993
    Optional

    OUT:
    smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    SSL
    465
    require login

    Current MS Outlook on desktop computer has this (which I tried and still didn't work)
    IN: pop.att.yahoo.com - 995 - SSL
    OUT: smtp.att.yahoo.com - 465 - SSL

    yahoo website says for sbcglobal.net to use:
    inbound.att.net - 995
    outbound.att.yahoo.net - 465
    SSL

    Driving me crazy if anyone can help.

    Hi again Craig, I guess this was the other post you mentioned in your intro.:rolleyes: I'm going to move this thread to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 forum for you, so the folks with that tablet are sure to see it. Someone should come along there to help you out with the WiFi problem. Good luck!

    Well, I removed the account and started over, so far so good.
